Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2016-93: Tax Dollars at Work: Successful Failure

I have been wondering why certain students come to class every day and refuse to do any work.  They put no effort into passing.  Why? 

I did a little research.  Each of the students in question was failing two classes.  None are worried because our official district policy reads, “To be eligible to participate in promotion privileges..students must adhere to and maintain the following requirements:  No more than 2 F’s in the last reporting period.” 

They can fail two classes and still do all the fun stuff associated with the end of the year.  Is it an wonder that they have stopped working in two of their classes.

So what?  Someday these people will be the clerks behind the counter at the government agency that you need help from.  The way affirmative action is going and with the advent of Obamacare, one of them may be the doctor that tells you everything is fine.

Good luck.  I am old enough that all I will need to worry about is getting my bed pan changed.

  1. I always pray to the Lord to let me live until I die, and never be just half-dead and warehoused somewhere.

    1. Being "warehoused". I like the term even if I don't like the concept. If I use it someday I hope I don't think I originated it.

      Grace and peace.
